Burkean Editorial: As expected, the state, media, and Twitter peanut gallery have been shrieking about the events of last night while ignoring the nightmarish act that caused it. The reality of the situation is more complex, but can be reasonably condensed into one word:
Decades of Indignity
Dublin has been a decaying dystopia for a long time. A once-livable and proud Irish community has been invaded and degraded.
Then, a man who is a product of this dystopia butchers our children in broad daylight. No expression of anger is too excessive.
Because mainstream Ireland’s “respectability” isn’t worth it. The indignity of “thoughts and prayers” isn’t worth it. Having a nice city isn’t worth it (not that Dublin is remotely nice). Nice trams and buses aren’t worth it. Cheap deliveroo and an increased tax base aren’t worth it. None of it is remotely worth it if your kids are being slashed on their way out of school. If you can walk for a mile on crowded streets and not hear a single Irish accent, then Modern Ireland isn’t worth it. If you can’t express your concern about the trajectory of your home without being censored or thrown in jail, it isn’t worth it.
It’s not worth it, and last night the people of inner city Dublin showed the political class that the breadcrumbs of services and respectability they receive are of less worth than the opportunity to show their primal wrath when an outsider spills the blood of their children.
Ignored For Years
Irish people, and Dubs included, have opposed the mass-importation of utterly foreign people every time they have had a chance. Opinion polling, citizenship referenda, and in the past couple of years on the streets. We never consented to our inner cities becoming minority-Irish.
And why would we? The writers of this publication have seen in real-time first-hand the rapid disintegration of anything worth living for in the North Inner City. An area that was at times rough but that always had an Irish soul has become a grimy, alien, dangerous, and depressed place. And the obviously main reason for this is how it has been turned into a favela for the masses of the Third World.
Men from this area don’t carve up schoolchildren in broad daylight. Men from this area disproportionately sacrificed their lives to the national struggle in the early and late 20th century. Patriotism is still rooted in these communities, and the idea of slicing up Irish kids is wholly alien.
And as the mass protests against the direct plantation have shown, Dubs are sick of everything alien and sinister being foisted on their homes.
Yet they have not been listened to. The media calls them scum for marching peacefully. The government brings in legislation to ban their speech. Sinn Féin councillors and the rest of the political class ignore them. And regime NGOs campaign for their dispossession.
The only thing left for Dubs to do, when confronted with the attempted murder of kids, was fight. And Irish people have always been good at that and willing to do it.
I have no prouder boast to say I am Irish and have been privileged to fight for the Irish people and for Ireland. If I have a duty I will perform it to the full with the unshakable belief that we are a noble race and that chains and bounds have no part in us.Francis Hughes
Direct result of state and Gardaí
For a long time now, protestors and campaigners against mass immigration have been harassed, doxxed, assaulted, and falsely arrested by the state and people in the pay of the state.
So our voices are ignored, all while our government uses our tax money to destroy our country and attack us for opposing it.
So when the state’s Public Order Unit waved their batons at Dubliners grieving over children’s blood being spilled, you would be a fool to be shocked or appalled at what followed.
The Snivelling Class
As usual, the various factions of respectable Ireland, from Fine Gael centrist dads to the faux-revolutionary Twitter Shinners, sobbed online about the riot in a transparent effort to take the spotlight away from the Algerian slasher incident. Instead of causing a scene, we were supposed to be “coming together”, “sending thoughts and prayers”, and sending solidarity to immigrants, which of course means “doing absolutely nothing.”
We also heard how the rioters were doing more damage to the inner city than immigrants… as if the tram and 3 buses that were burnt out somehow made the streets so much safer.
A Dangerous Game
Spontaneous expressions of public rage are never neat affairs. Lawbreaking, mob violence, and damage are obviously not desirable traits of an ordered society. But Modern Ireland is disordered, and while the 23rd of November 2023 will go down as one of the saddest in our history, nobody should be shocked at the reaction.
The Burkean and its contributors do not recommend or engage in any illegal behaviour. At this time, our primary concern is with the schoolchildren, parents, and teachers of the inner-city school that was brutally attacked. Go mbeannaí Críost dóibh go léir.
